KEY SCRIPTURE: Acts 2:1 “And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.”
In our previous study we learnt that there is a great power manifested when children of God are united in prayer.
This is what should happen yet many of us go to prayer gatherings and leave without any impact on their lives. The main condition for the full benefits of a united prayer is not just being together, but having one mind. In Genesis 11:6 it reads,” And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do”.
The Lord said these people have one mind with one language and nothing can stop them.
In many meetings some brethren may be bearing grudges against others, others don’t even understand what is going on, and some too would be praying on personal problems, whiles the group may be praying on something else.
These things don’t make a united prayer, and robs them of the great blessings of united prayer.
Satan knows the great impact of a united prayer, and introduces all sorts of things into the minds of the children of God from truly uniting with their brethren.
Please take the following counsel, Philippians 2:2 ” Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind”.
The next thing to do to have the full benefits of a united prayer session is to believe that whatever the group prayed on has been granted.
I share one mind with all those I pray with. I bear no animosity or selfish motive of any sort. I do nothing through strive or vain glory, for the desire of the group is my focus.
Philippians 2:1-3 “If there be therefore any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
Fulfil ye my joy, that ye be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.”
